Rear 6 lug rotor suggestions

im ordering chevy 6 lug axle shafts for my ford 9" rear end and need to find rotors to put in it...what vehicle would have the deepest offset rotor that would slide over the axleshaft? im using 96 dodge 1/2 ton rotors now and the bracket had to be weld so close to the flang that 2 of the bolts wont come come out of the flange if they were to break bc there isnt very much offset. im goint to be using the Standard Chevy 1/2 ton front calipers.

something off of a newer chevy 1/2 ton like an 2004 Silverado. the rear rotors should work for you.

There are two different rotors. One's for the trucks and ones for the tahoes/suburbans. One is deeper than the other by a few mm. Hope this helps.

Carquest or auto Value part numbers

55066 325mm diameter x 85mm deep from flange

55084 330mm diameter x 90mm deep from flange
